In most emergency departments, only experienced nurses [with] advances certifications perform triage. Multitasking is essential. Fortunately, there are many safety mechanisms in place to catch potential errors. Traditionally, nurses work hour shifts, three shifts a week. I wear a FitBit and I can easily put on 5 miles in a single day. A couple weeks ago, I was on an airplane and wound up taking care of a passenger who was having difficulty breathing after the flight attendants asked if there was a medical professional on board.
You will become fanatical about your loved ones' safety. All of those injuries can be prevented. The reason is that new nurses take upward of six months to get oriented, so that basically means six months of training before a brand new nurse can start working. Skip to main content. Home Page.

Page Scans. He WILL appreciate it!! I am a Physician Assistant and I have been working in Medicine for over 20 years and the doctors I respected most were the ones who allowed themselves to feel. When you allow yourself to really feel for your patient you are bound to feel pain when they hurt or die. This is the human condition. I allowed myself the release of tears, at home, and comforted myself knowing that at the end they knew they were not alone.

The field is extremely difficult and if you dare speak up you will be jobless. I had to report a nurse once who left my patient without her pain meds for 9 days. My patient suffered extreme pain for 9 days without cause. This nurse was a danger to the patients. Guess who got the sack? I guess they were afraid I would go to the State Board. I never intended to do that I just wanted her disciplined. I was relieved to hear she was gone from that nursing home after a time by friends.

I have no regrets for speaking up. I can not just sit there and watch someone literally torture a patient. The business of medicine is what is killing the medical staff more than the loss of their patients. As for me I will only go to a doctor who cares and shows emotion.
God Bless this doctor that he gave himself the time to grieve. Lord knows our schools typically did not guide us in this.
The Soft Parade - 50th Anniversary Edition
My job involved a LOT of anticipatory grieving and perinatal bereavement. One day, I turned a corner to find one of my least favorite OB residents slumped against the wall outside a pt room, a strip of US images dangling lifelessly from his hand. He took a deep breath himself, nodded weakly, arose and re-entered the room. I knew then that his cocky attitude was a shield against showing his deep insecurities and fears.
Brilliant philosophy Whitney which I share.
Love is enough. Long ago I worked for a surgeon known around the World. He would travel around the World to speak and teach. Patients would come from around the World to be treated. One day I asked him why he stopped treating cancer patients. He said that when he did surgery, he could no longer see well due to all his tears, he did not want to work without a clear field.

He said it pained him so much when he would be eye to eye with the cancer that was eating at his patient. I had thought he was quite the bully, but it turns out that was his false exterior. He held the pain inside, but he could not hide the tears when wearing laser goggles to catch those tears.
I had new respect for him. I have sent quite a few thank you cards to doctors over the years. I quit because I thought they may be taken wrong or just to much and adding to there junk mail.
Thank you for letting me know it is OK to do, Will be sending more now that I know they do help. Helping them to feel appreciated was the whole purpose anyway. Thank you for everything you do…Butch. We have great days, and we have seriously tough days.
Thanks for your work Pamela — it matters. I have an ongoing thank you card file that is a permanent fixture in my desk drawer. In addition to giving the news that a family member has died I have an idea for another article you can write. How does a doctor tell someone and their family that the patient has a terminal illness and will likely die in only months?
I remember when I was 20 and my 24 year old brother was diagnosed with chonrdo sarcoma of the sphenoid sinus. My parents drove the two of us to NYC to see an expert. He examined my brother for a few minutes and then the four of us met with him in his office. He told us there was no hope and my brother would die soon. He remained distant and unemotional. It was an odd and uncomfortable moment for my family. That was in He passed away less than a year later. The videos of the encounters were critiqued for humanism, compassion, etc.
Our standardized patients are awesome actors and really made this feel real for us. Though it was very difficult and awkward, I am so glad we had this opportunity.
